Shot Shells

Anyone have experience using CCI shot shells in automatic pistols?

Re: Shot Shells

that`s not a good idea.
if/when a shot cup breaks or opens up and that small shot falls out... jams the action.

Re: Shot Shells

except for mice in a garage (wer glasses) I've not found them effective. Although they are often called snake loads, they are not great for killing snakes at 15 foot.

Re: Shot Shells

Use the crimped ones Federal makes and you won't have either problem listed. But, they will NOT cycle a semi-auto pistol. There's not enough force to push open the action. They will go off, but you'll have to manually cycle the slide.
